It looks like it would do more harm then good.

Good for radiant heat only and will help while moving at speed but as soon as you get into stop and go driving and idling at lights, will do no good.

I would agree...don't waste your money. Once that heats shield heats up all it'* going to do is heat up the incoming air more.

In agreement also. The material it'* made of is no help either.

Look around on our site you'll get some great ideas for heat shields.

As Bill said it'* no insult, but it is all show and no go.
